VBR: MP3 files encoded with a variable bit rate to deliver high quality at roughly 160kilobits per second.

64: MP3 files encoded at a constant bit rate of 64 kilobits per second. These files are ideal for users with slower Internet connections

It all depends what you plan to do with the downloads. I download for personal use using 64kbps (radio fm quality) and save the shows on a hard drive. This takes up space so I wanted the smaller size files. If you have a good stereo at home you can burn to wave file for personal use and it will sound fine. Just don't trade this way. If you do plan to burn to wave file for home use then download the VBR(CD quality with some degrade in quality) file and burn the better quality. You can tell the difference only in side by side comparison. I hope this helps.
